Billionaire Duke fails in an attempt to evict 141 tenants out of council homes

The Duke of Westminster’s property group was accused of ‘social cleansing

The Duke of Westminster has failed in his attempt to kick out families, including disabled children, from their council flats to make way for luxury housing. Worth an estimated £10 billion, Hugh Grosvenor’s property group Grosvenor, wanted the 141 tenants from Walden House, Belgravia, to move 12 miles away, so they could build luxury apartments, shops and social housing by 2023, the Mirror reported. The new proposal would be called ‘Cundy Street Quarter’. The proposed site is presently occupied by five residential buildings – including Walden House – with leases expiring from 2021. However, a determined campaign by residents, community groups and local councillors which gathered 200,000 signatures, has resulted in a ‘change of heart’ from the Grosvenor group. They had accused Grosvenor of ‘social cleansing’ and of wanting to ‘destroy the community of Walden House’. Although Walden House is owned by the Grosvenor group, it has leased the building to Westminster Council for council house provision.

To my mind, Joe Walsh is spot on when he says that the GOP has morphed into a Scump led cult.

Design changes? What design changes? Here’s an explanation written 14 years ago:

The focus of the new EU standards has been on safer front-end design to minimize injuries to the legs and head in 25 mph crashes. They will require passenger cars and light vans to pass tests involving the A-pillar, bumper, the hood’s leading edge and windshield to determine if they protect adults and children from leg and head injuries in frontal impact accidents. Automakers will also be required to install flexible bumpers and hoods that crumple and to add 8 inches of space between the exterior structure and the under-hood structure from the front bumper to the windshield to better disperse the impact energy of a person hitting the front end. More stringent rules are expected to be phased in beginning in 2010, when the number of tests doubles to four — two for leg injuries and two for head injuries. The changes are expected to save 2,000 lives annually.

Apparently the NHTSA has never bothered itself to get serious about this stuff, but it’s probably coming to America sooner or later.

Of course, this still doesn’t explain why pedestrian deaths have skyrocketed since 2009. The popularity of SUVs gets some of the blame, but can’t account for all of it. Cell phones and so forth are a global phenomenon, so there’s no special reason they should have an outsize effect in the US. For now it remains a mystery.

Another American Stupidity towards the people who live in the USA

Walking Around Has Gotten a Lot More Dangerous Over the Past Decade

I missed this when it made the rounds a few months ago, but today the LA Times tells us that pedestrian fatalities have been rising steeply for the past decade. Here’s a chart from the Governors Highway Safety Association:


This is something of a mystery, but the most interesting part of the Times story is this:

Elsewhere, pedestrian deaths are dropping. In the early 2000s, the European Union began requiring automakers to pass pedestrian safety tests before they could sell vehicles in Europe. The regulations spurred design changes, and pedestrian fatalities declined by 36% in the EU from 2007 to 2016. Japan adopted similar regulations. It too has seen pedestrian deaths drop.

The same approach in the U.S. could save countless lives, experts say.

David Cameron: Boris Johnson backed Leave to 'help career'

Boris Johnson did not believe in Brexit during the referendum campaign and backed Leave "because it would help his political career", says David Cameron.
In an extract from his memoir published in the Sunday Times, the former PM also refers to cabinet minister Michael Gove as "a foam-flecked Faragist".
The pair were "ambassadors for the expert-trashing, truth-twisting age of populism", Mr Cameron writes.
And he also accuses Mr Gove of being disloyal to himself and Mr Johnson.
Of his former colleague, Mr Cameron writes: "One quality shone through: disloyalty. Disloyalty to me - and, later, disloyalty to Boris."
The latest revelations come after another extract published on Saturday accused the pair of behaving "appallingly" during the 2016 referendum campaign.

Mr Cameron writes that when deciding whether to back Leave or Remain in the campaign, Mr Johnson was concerned what the "best outcome" would be for him.
"Whichever senior Tory politician took the lead on the Brexit side - so loaded with images of patriotism, independence and romance - would become the darling of the party," he says.
